Max's theory does work. We've had several instances where the switch needed
to be moved closer by removing a washer, in order for it to function
correctly. We've also encountered switches which tested OK with an ohm-meter
and a test light, but which still did not activate the solenoid. Further
testing with a voltmeter showed that they must have been corroded internally
as they were passing only 4 or 5 volts. Replacement of the switch made the
solenoid operate and, therefore, the overdrive.
